Meet the Inaugural Blueprint Investor Cohort

Dorm Room Fund recently announced our inaugural investor cohort as part of the Blueprint Project. Working together with HBCUvc, BLCK VC, First Round and over a dozen venture firms and general partners, we designed a 6-week program to help aspiring Black, Latinx, and Indigenous student investors learn the ins-and-outs of the VC industry.

Our cohort of 30 extraordinary rising VCs is comprised of aerospace engineers, poets, builders, philosophers, and doers. They hail from all over the globe and attend schools across the US. We could not be more grateful to have gotten to know them, and couldn’t be more excited to see what they achieve next.


First Round Capital Reading List

We hosted a webinar last week with Brett Berson, partner at First Round Capital, who talked about Dorm Room Fund, First Round and shared insights on entrepreneurship and VC.

Bret also shared First Round’s required reading list for new employees, featuring must-follow industry blogs and newsletters, general information on VC, and the history of Silicon Valley and technology. 🤓


Dorm Room Fund is (finally) on Instagram
